This is so fresh and so clean it should be an Outcast song. Ok I’m sorry, but it really is great.
The tomatoes are in season and just so sweet and juicy. They were the reason this dish became an idea, and I’m so glad that it did. The little mozzarella balls are light, soft, and pick up the lemon flavor of the dressing so well. Put it all together with fresh basil and homemade lemon salad dressing, and you’ve really got a winner.
Even our three year old ate an entire bowl for dinner! Of course at first he informed us that he did not like cheese in balls, and he wasn’t sure how he felt about the rainbow of tomatoes. However, after thirty minutes and some early bedtime threats he gave them a try. Needless to say he’s now a big fan of cheese balls and orange tomatoes.
It’s such a flavorful dish to be so nice and light, but the thing that really makes it worth a try is how unbelievably simple it is to make!
